Earlier, I talked about how important it is to create efficient systems in business. It’s best to have a streamlined process you follow for everything you do.
It’s time to create an efficient process for your writing life. This isn’t meant to crush your creativity, it’s to get the “what do I do next?” question out of the picture. You’ll have a process for what you’re doing next, leaving room for you to be more creative and better at what you do.
Here is an example narrative to help you figure out your process:
“First, I come up with story ideas. I generate story ideas by _______________________.
I write my story and book ideas as they come to me. Next, I choose the story I am going to work on next. When I can’t decide, I ______________________________.
Then, I research ideas to include in my book. I only look for relevant and specific research. I organize my notes as I go.
Next, I follow these cheats as I get ready to write my book:
____________, ____________, ____________, ____________, ____________
I am now prepared to write the book. I write during these times: ____________, ____________, ____________.
If I get writer’s block, I ____________ and ____________ to get back on track.
Then, I ____________________________________.
Finally, my first draft is complete.”
This example can become anything you want it to become. The important thing is that you create a personalized system for writing. You cover your bases and leave nothing to chance. You have steps and solutions for everything. Consider this both a contract and insurance policy for yourself– you’ll never have to get off track.
